If you check the date on that article, it is from January. They have since restored their funding. They had a policy that if any organization they helped fund was under investigation to pull the money. They have since changed the policy to wait until the investigation is complete. BTW again the investigation was just a smoke screen, for a political ploy.

Yes. It was all over the news. That's why I stopped donating to Susan G Komen.

They started funding about 1 month after pulling their funding. They had a policy in place to not give money if a group was being investigated on how their funding was being handled. I can't blame them for that. They were just trying to protect themsleves. They have changed their policy to now wait for an investigation is over.

They pulled it until women's groups went ballistic so they reversed it.
